I love that uplifting video and music too. Damon mocking himself dancing Jamiroquai's Jay Kay style is fun.

Does anyone know anything about any of the people that star in the videos? I know there are a couple models in the country house one but what about some of the people in the Universal etc?

I like the universal a lot. I had to make a video based on that and analyse it in media studies. I love bang, for tomorrow and popscene also

I know Keith Allen (Lilly Allen's dad) and Matt Lucas from Country House, and Noah Taylor is in M.O.R. No idea about the rest.

Country House
Jo Guest (ropey glamour model)
Sara Stockbridge (model, most notably for Vivenne Westwood - I admit I looked this one up!)
Damien Hirst (director, doesn't feature though)

Parklife
Phil Daniels (of course, actor, Quadrophenia and lots of other film and TV)

Any others?

Tough one.

I love Chemical World. I live in town, when I look out through the window, all I can see is a minimarket's car park. Everything is grey and sad. This video is like a breath of fresh air. Dunno, it just makes me feel good. It's beautifully filmed. I love the bit when you see a buttercup in the foreground, then Graham blinks and opens his eyes.

The Universal is clever (and they're all so gorgeous in it, hehe :P )

Coffee & TV is sweet. I like the story told by the video.

To the end is absolutely gorgeous. Love the atmosphere. Also love the video for the French version with Françoise Hardy.

Things that never fail to crack me up:
>> Damon's little "dance steps" in Bang
>> the leaf blower in Good song
>> when they all enter the caravan in Sunday sunday (i have a dirty mind)
>> the priest kissing the guy at the end of Universal

:o :o :o :o WHAT?!!! HOW??

Mine is "Coffee & TV"
American MTV actually played it when it came out and that's how I first heard of Blur. So I love it not only for sentimental reasons, but also b/c I love Milky!

2- "To the End"
I mean look how hot they were in suits and tuxes! :D

Plus, I love the whole film

3- "The Universal" of course!
